Why are people so obsessed with robot vacuums?

USATODAY - Tech Top Stories

There's nothing worse than waking up on a Sunday morning, already dealing with the Sunday scaries, and realizing that your home is a mess. But before you pull out the old vacuum cleaner, broom, and dust pan, maybe it's time to consider a tool that does the work for you, and no, I'm not talking about hiring a maid. Robot vacuums are a major trend when it comes to keeping your home clean and tidy. Simply unpack the robot vacuum, plug it in, and away it goes, sucking up dust and crumbs the house over. But let's be real, in 2020 robot technology has made some serious advances, and automated vacuums are better than ever.


Neato vs. Roomba: Which robot vacuum best suits your cleaning needs?

Mashable

When it comes to cleaning, there's one thing we can all agree on: vacuuming is no fun. First, there's the setup that requires you to grab a clunky vacuum from your closet, find a nearby outlet, and somehow not trip on a long cord. Then, you pray for the thing to work, considering the lights flicker whenever its power button goes on. When you're finally cleaning up week-old Cheerios or a dust colony, you realize the vacuum doesn't suck up the mess. Oh, and we can't forget about the noise. It's an awful soundtrack of clicking, rolling, and picking up that drives you nuts and scares your pets.

Roomba i7 Review: The Most Capable, Most Expensive Robot Vacuum

IEEE Spectrum Robotics

It's their newest, fanciest, most spectacular robot vacuum, and will set you back an eyebrow-raising US $950. The i7 includes both iRobot's premium i7 vacuum, and a " " in the form of a docking station that will empty the i7's dustbin into a larger disposable bag. This means that you can go much, much longer between maintenance sessions, and it's entirely possible that the i7 can operate in your home autonomously for weeks or even months, keeping your floors clean without you ever having to think about it. While the dirt disposal dock is the most visible new feature, we've also been looking forward to the persistent maps that come with the i7. These are maps that stick around between cleaning sessions, allowing you to give the robot specific instructions like exactly where and where not to clean, and while the dirt dock is cool, persistent maps are even cooler, with an enormous amount of long-term potential.
